In the School of Visual and Performing Arts, programs of study integrate theory, practice and history so students can respond to the rapidly changing demands within the visual arts professions.
Academic programs in Visual and Performing Arts include the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, with concentrations in Creative Arts Therapy, Graphic Design, Photography, and Studio Art; the School also offers a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design with a concentration in Sustainable Design.
For students who demonstrate interest and talent, the School provides many opportunities within its range of offerings, from traditional studio arts to advanced computer animation. Balancing the theoretical with the practical, and classroom exercises with internship experiences, is the hallmark of the School of Visual and Performing Arts. Students applying for admission are required to submit a portfolio of artwork for review by the faculty.
To prepare the student for contemporary directions within the arts, studio programs emphasizing creative and critical thinking are complemented with the technical skills needed to explore and use the visual languages of Art. These creative and technical proficiencies are placed in historical and aesthetic contexts, all within a liberal arts education. Endicott College firmly believes that the more diverse the educational background, the more prepared the student will be for meeting the challenges of a professional practice.
In addition to the Visual Arts, there are growing opportunities in Performing Arts including the Music Minor, Theater Minor, Endicott Singers, Repertory Dance Ensemble, Pep Band, Jazz Band, Chamber Ensemble, Boston Children's Theatre, and the Drumming Circle.
